‘Tis the season for giving and what better way to spread holiday joy than to recognize your employer with a Secretary of Defense Freedom Award nomination. With just a few weeks remaining in this year’s nomination season, you can’t properly ring in the New Year without nominating your supportive employer.

Spread the cheer, go to and click on the “Nominate Employer” tab.

During these times of significant change and hardship brought on by COVID-19 it is important to recognize those supportive employers who continue to provide unparalleled support to you and your family members.

The Freedom Award is the highest honor the Department of Defense gives to employers for supporting National Guard and Reserve employees. The employers chosen exemplify what it means to go above and beyond federal requirements in support of military employees.

The nomination form takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.  Nominations must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2020.
